Re: need some help

I have not attempted the file but it occurs to me I don't think you can have symbols like a period in the middle of a file like that.
If someone has already downloaded it try renaming it then opening it.

Re: Pileated oodpecker

@Sphurley what program did you use to do that conversion?
I have not found it necessary, I use sheetcam it can use svg files. I use Qcad if I need to draw something technical.

Hope this works! The cat was drawn by a friend while she was in Mexico so I could try scanning and cutting, I thought it was cute. The edges are shaky, I know how to do them smooth now. The shaky sort of ads to the fur look. David http://www.plasmaspider.com/images/mexicat.png mexicat.svg

What do you do with your table sludge? I cleaned out my table and was surprised at how much crud there was, must use it more than I realize.
The dropouts are easy to grab and recycle, what do you do with the wet heavies?
